    wireless solar ip security camera recommendation?

    Control Freq do good GSM alarms that run off 12v with SIM card. You can have 4 inputs and control 2 outputs remotely. You get a call and txt within about 4seconds of activation. I use Takex quad beam sensors and control a siren and lighting with the out puts. I've got a 4G router that runs a DVR cctv system with a 100gb a month data contract with 3 for about £30p/m. We have very few false alarms but quite a few actual break in attempts but with the Cctv I can look and decide how much ammo I need to take with me

    We've got a 161 and has been really good. We normally use an AP300 battery. You can get a lot of work done with it. Much nicer to use than a 2 stroke!

    Over the years one of the down sides I've noticed of encouraging weekend work is some guys will start using your jobs as recovery time so they can put full effort in on their jobs.

    We've got a post puller and works a treat pulling the post out with the concrete on. Hole already dug!

    I got my kit from Sorbus and they give you training on it. I am not sure what particular course would help in the interpretation that's really down to years of general experience of trees and understanding what the kit can do for you and like most things time on the kit.

    Normally a Resistograph is chosen over a Picus either for the application or cost. Micro Drill - £7k Picus - £20K A Picus is really only useful on trees over 450mm diameter so anything less would be Microdrill territory. Micro Drill takes about 30 seconds to set up and use with instant feedback but only a snap shot of what's going on in the tree Picus takes about 30mins - 1hr depending on tree, measuring points, access etc but gives you more of an over view. I've got a Picus 3 and a Micro Drill. It's best to work both together as you can do a few drills to see the best location to do the Picus. Also the results of the Picus can sometimes be misleading for many different reasons and you would need to cross check with a drill before felling a tree for instance on the strength of a tomograph.

    How to add a normal video clip

    It doesn't seem to let me on my iPhone. When I transferred it to my computer it was 100mb. What's best way to compress it?
